Most Popular Scandinavian food in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway

November 5, 2019 Agatha Simes

Reviews on Scandinavian food in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway. Longyearbyen is a great jumping-off point for experiencing the humbling power of the Arctic islands. Glaciers, mountains and primitive wildlife are the main attractions here. Be warned, though: Those polar bears look cuddly enough, but they are extremely dangerous and don't take kindly to gawking tourists.

This is a historical dining place, which has always been connected with high quality. It was here that the mining company’s office workers enjoyed their meals – and the panoramic outlook over Longyearbyen, Hiorthfjellet and Longyearbreen. The restaurant h

Located a bit from the “city center”, but only 5 min walk, so easy to go there. Nice and cosy place. The food was nice, and price level very fair, can recommend you to go there during your visit in Longyearbyen.

Had a great time even though it was late they took time to serve us and with a smile. The server was fun and connected with our family, all adults. One of us had food allergies which they were more than happy to accommodate him. It is centrally located and the ambiance was cool. Good suggestions for beer and food. Awesome place to visit and eat.

To be clear, this concerns the bistro side only. I wasn't able to get into the main dining room.The bistro is actually a part of the bar. A few simple tables and chairs.I went for the three-course menu and was not impressed. It began well; a very good fish chowder accompanied by amazing toast. The main course was a surprisingly bland fried cod. Dessert was chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream; the mousse was good, but why would anyone make sour ice cream? Overall the presentation far exceeded the quality of the food.The local beer was good.Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a Review of Huset Bistro!We always welcome feedback from our valued guests to help us maintain and improve our product and services.Best regards Huset – Maria

I was staying in the Svalbard Hotel and decided that I should eat at the Polfareran Restaurant as the breakfasts had been extremely good.The restaurant itself is not really stylish but the food was outstanding. The menu is quite limited and we started with a very good houmus amuse bouche and home mage crackers. I decided to drink the very good local beer but the wne list was pretty good. The first course was scallop ceviche with fennel salad, which was delicious.The main course was fantastic. It was reindeer with a dark sauce and appropriate vegetables. It was served rare and the taste was completely wonderful. I thanked the chef, who turned out to be Scottish...and a very good cookA great meal! No room for desserts even though they looked good
